Just to say thank you for such a wonderful meal last Thursday. It all went perfectly! The food was fantastic and was commented on by a number of our members - the portions were generous and the extra dishes of vegetables and ice cream were...much appreciated. Everything was so well presented from the layout of the tables, to the table settings and the food choices themselves. The service by Nathan, Jo, Kelly, Tash & Trudy was truly excellent considering there were 37 of us - and chefs Alex and Bella were brilliant in producing such first class dishes. Please pass on our thanks to everyone who made last Thursday evening the success it was, and thank you Cerian for dealing with all our bookings and meal choices.More

Fab restaurant- very DOG friendly - great staff- booked the night before when we called here for a drink with our dog - wonderful views over the bay, has a swimming pool too- think it’s open 10-6 daily- varied menu, lots of choice, asked for...dog friendly table and it was all ready for us when we arrived the night after - nice little touch with dog biscuits and water bowl all ready. We could not fault it! Good value for food and drinks. Busy. You should book!More

Stunning views with excellent food. Great location albeit a bit of a trek up from Barmouth seafront. All dishes we had were excellent and a bit different from normal pub food. Complimentary tortillas nice touch. Service was also very good especially considering we were sat...outside and so some distance from bar. Shame not open more days in the week as otherwise we would have definitely visited more than once. Worth booking as seemed busy which is always a good signMore

French onion soup was awful, onion sliced too thick, liquid was watery and tasteless, no cheese crouton which is proper French onion soup. Gammon dry, tough and no flavour. Fish cooked far too much, no taste and hard pieces of chorizo. Sorbet just ice and...lacked fruit flavour. My friend ended up with a poorly tummy that night.More

Thank you for your review. I'm sorry the food was not to your liking or not up to standard, this is unusual for our chefs. Did you mention this to the team who served you? We did not advertise a cheese crouton with the soup,...More

We were staying in Barmouth for a couple of days and this was recommended by our host, we are so pleased we visited. Well worth the short drive out of the town centre

A five star Sunday dinner at the Bay which was really pleasant. It was also pleasing to see a traditional menu on offer after the 2023 "changes". Clearly lots of investment in the property inside and out - very clean and smart toilets being just...one. Roast beef and Yorkshire is always a winner but today's seemed especially nice. Lovely blackcurrant and apple turnover for dessert was also very enjoyable. Will gladly return and happily recommend to othersMore

We had a wonderful meal. The food was so enjoyable, tasty so very moorish. It was very filling. But we still managed a lovely black cherry sponge, with brandy cherries 🍒 and cherry ice cream. Yummy. The place is clean and beautiful, with some lovely...views. The staff are helpful and pleasant. Can not wait to go again.More

Came for Sunday lunch on our first day of a family holiday. Everything about it was first class. The service, the atmosphere, and the food. All at a very reasonable price. We all had 3 courses and enjoyed every bit of it. Highly recommended.
